Band Celebrates Release With Official Video for Lead Single ‘Losing You Blues’

Curb College Academic Advising Director Tina Dishman, who uses Tina Adair in her music career, is celebrating the release of Sister Sadie II, the new sophomore project from her bluegrass group Sister Sadie. After its first week of release, Sister Sadie II stormed its way onto the Billboard Bluegrass Albums Chart as the highest new entry onto the chart, debuting at No. 2 for the week of September 15.

“We couldn’t have picked a better weekend for the release of our second record – Sister Sadie II – on Pinecastle Records. It worked out that we were playing the Delaware Valley and the Thomas Point Beach festivals which are both awesome places that we love,” said  Adair. “We had a blast celebrating our new release with all the folks at both places. And wow… what a nice surprise to get the wonderful news today that we’ve debuted at #2 on the BILLBOARD Bluegrass Albums Chart for the week – we are beyond grateful for everyone that has helped us reach this spot by purchasing our new music.”

Fans were treated to the lead single, “Losing You Blues” earlier this summer. The official video was also unveiled on The Bluegrass Situation, where fans were give an exclusive first-watch. Shot on-location in Knoxville, Tenn., the band takes fans inside a home style jam, featuring all five world renowned musicians, each at the top of their game. Bluegrass enthusiasts can watch the full video here. The song, which was written by Adair, recently hit No. 1 on Roots Music Report’s Contemporary Bluegrass Song Chart.

Sister Sadie will be rolling into the annual International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) conference later this month as finalists in the category for “Emerging Artist of the Year.”  “Raleigh’s Ride” from the new project is also being used by IBMA as a soundtrack for marketing and upcoming World of Bluegrass festivities, which the band will be performing at. The IBMA Awards are set to take place on September 27 in Raleigh, N.C. at the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts.

In addition to Tina Adair, other Sister Sadie band members include Dale Ann Bradley, Gena Britt, Deanie Richardson and Beth Lawrence.
